The Parliament of the World’s Religions Condemns President Trump’s Plans to Withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement
CHICAGO (June 1, 2017) — The 21st century presents no greater moral challenge than addressing the threat of human-caused climate change.
President Donald Trump has utterly failed that test.
The Parliament of the World’s Religions condemns in the strongest possible terms the President’s decision to renege on the commitment of the United States to the Paris Climate Agreement, a pact signed by 195 nations and formally ratified by 147 nations.
The decision is wrong from every relevant perspective:
Scientifically, it is unsound and indefensible.
Economically, it undermines the ability of the United States to build a competitive economy for the future, sacrificing US jobs at almost every level of production and service, sacrificing American competitiveness in every market.
Medically, it condemns hundreds of thousands to unnecessary sickness and premature death.
Politically, it undermines the United States’ credibility and trustworthiness with its strongest allies as well as its fiercest competitors, and thus strikes a self-inflicted blow against national security.
Our condemnation of this decision is based on our conviction that the decision is wrong, but not just in the sense that it is incorrect. This decision is wrong in the sense that it is evil—it will result in devastation to life on Earth for generations to come. Its global consequences and impact on every living being on the planet makes it fundamentally immoral.
Every individual and every nation, every institution and every corporate entity, every religious and spiritual community faces this momentous ethical challenge of our age. Those with the greatest opportunity and power to affect the course of the 21st century have the greatest responsibility to act with unflinching moral integrity.
No individual faces more responsibility than the President of the United States.
His failure, however, only increases the responsibility of others. If this President fails, it falls then to the people and their elected representatives to reject, reverse, and overcome it.
The Parliament is committed to that reversal and to overcoming its consequences as well as the ignorance on which it is based. We call on others who cherish all that is sacred in our world to join in that commitment, and to endorse that commitment with their own words and their own actions.

Walking the Labyrinth is Walking to the Center of Who You Are.

Everyone is welcome to walk our Labyrinth on their own time and pace.
It is a walking meditation. As we walk, we are open and receptive to Divine Ideas,
our Divine Purpose and Divine Transformation.

A labyrinth is a sacred geometrical symbol with a single path leading to a center point.
It is not a maze because there is only one path.  The walls keep you on the path.
The goal is in the center of the labyrinth.  When you reach it, you have gone half the distance – you now need to turn around and walk back out.
Its unique pattern is designed to shift awareness from left brain to right brain as you walk, inducing altered states of consciousness.
It allows those who enter to experience other ways of “seeing.”  The center point is the place of power.  A labyrinth is a single path or uni-cursal tool for personal,
psychological and spiritual transformation.  Labyrinths are thought to enhance right brain activity.
In a most basic sense, the labyrinth represents the spiritual journey; that of venturing to the center of your innermost being and then returning to the world with a broader sense of who you are.
It is a metaphor for life’s journey.  Inherent within the design of the labyrinth is its archetypical power, dating back some 3,000 to 4,000 years.

Unity of Melbourne

Hi Steve,
Thank you for your interest. We had a super day on Sunday, New Thought Day.
Rev. Bill Livingston asked me to do the talk at Unity of Melbourne and I used the full set of your Pdf film that Bret, one of their helpers, converted to Power Point. It was very appropriate and well received, however I do admit that I ad-libbed a bit too. As far as I know Bret filmed the entire production so it could well be available. I will have to check on that.
A suggestion was made that we have a semi regular focus on the various New Thought persuasions, to embrace them all in the consciousness of unity and working together.
Possibly building to an even bigger celebration next March New Thought Day.
Let’s keep in touch,
In loving unity
Graeme
